Wrapped grill, pillars and one wing mirror in gloss black (just ran out of time for the second mirror, not a look I am going for on purpose!)
Enjoying experimenting with the wrapping knowing I can just pull it off when I like!
How was wrapping the wing mirror ? I'm toying with the idea of doing mine. Did you do it in situ or take it off ? Did you use one piece of wrap or several ?
Took me a couple of hours. But that was with some trial and error. Going to do the second this evening and hopefully won’t take more than an hour.
I took it off, having just taken the second off in a few minutes it is well worth it. If you haven’t done it Bigwinn wrote a quick how to in another thread for me not to long ago, I try and link it when I have time later!
I used several pieces as I had a roll and have just been experimenting with it. I cut the joins to follow the contours of the mirror. Only noticeable if you go looking for it but concerned over the longevity, might start to peel with use and washing? I don’t know, never used vinyl before.
I just found the trick was to have a lot of spare wrap, then I could pull and flex around the curves etc. and all the wrinkles and stretch marks were then in spare vinyl I cut off. Possible with a large single piece this would work even more effectively although I reckon joins/wrinkles would be inevitable on the mirror side with one large piece. At least for a beginner like me!
For my second mirror I plan to start on the mirror side on the inside and work round to join in the centre.
